Teddy Awards 2014 Jury Statements
A film that takes us on a journey, both literal and personal through a hazardous landscape where invisibility is a necessary aspect of Queer survival.
A film that reflects on personal Queer histories in mid-twentieth century Swizterland, brings to light the necessity and urgency to resist and engage with homophobia as it proliferates around the planet.
